Life in pictures / february 2018

A fresh new week…

Migrating to Hugo

Last day, I decided to embrace modern web technologies by switching to Hugo in order to manage my website in a more elegant manner. Up to now, I have been using a mix of Markdown and HTML files with custom CSS and site structure. This was also a good opportunity to revise some content and check internal links. Indeed, since Dropbox removed their support for sharing live link in our Public folder, I was left with tons of broken image links (in fact, all of them).

lost+found 2016

Here are some draft notes, written in 2016, unfilled but not lost forever. With slight edits to accomodate a proper archive blog post. Docker (August 2016) Docker allows to wrap software into a dedicated filesystem available on a server without having to build a complete virtual machine (VM) with its own operating system (OS). Docker containers can thus run as isolated processes on any computer and any OS. Getting started with Docker There are actually two options to install Docker on a Mac: Docker Toolbox and Docker for Mac.

Live coding

Here comes the time of “live coding”. My son and I were regularly following some French Youtubers playing Minecraft or other video games last year. This looks like a crazy life, but maybe living as a Youtuber is not so far to being a programmer. In any case, what is of interest to me is that the tools Youtubers actually use (Youtube, Twitch, Discord) are actually also used by some folks I follow in computer science.

The setup (2018 edition)

It is time to give a brief overview of my setup although things have not really changed. Well, I realize that I am now running High Sierra on a Macbook 12” Retina (8 Go RAM, sigh) and that Apple kindely continued to suppress things here and there. Last one was telnet (but also ftp). I must admit that I did not experience much incompatibility issues or major crash when I switch over High Sierra two weeks ago, though.

lost+found 2015

Here are some draft notes, written in 2015, unfilled but not lost forever. With slight edits to accomodate a proper archive blog post. R and psychometrics (February 2015) I have been using R for most of my statistical projects since 10 years or so. In the beginning it really was an awesome software for psychometric modeling because there were some nice packages for multidimensional and optimal scaling, IRT modeling, and factor analysis, which were otherwise not available, at least on OS X.
